Volatility in the Silver-Gold Ratio

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 00:00
The silver-gold ratio measures the price relationship between the two precious metals. Silver and gold are hybrid commodities as both have long histories as both metals with a myriad of applications and as financial instruments. Long before there was dollar, euros, pounds, or any of the other currencies in circulation around the globe today, silver and gold were means of exchange. Five thousand years ago, in around 3000 BC, the first Egyptian Pharaoh, Menes, stated that two and one-half parts silver equal one-part gold. The declaration was the first that linked the value of silver and gold... more

Four Lessons From An Ugly April In Crude Oil

Thu, 04/30/2020 - 00:00
April 2020 will go down in history as the month that the price of crude oil fell to a low that most market participants did not believe possible. West Texas Intermediate crude oil began trading on the NYMEX division of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1983. Until April 20, 2020, the lowest price the energy commodity ever reached on the nearby futures contract was $9.75 per barrel. A negative price for one of the most liquid commodities that trade in the futures markets and powers the lives of people around the globe was unthinkable for many.
